If you are a dreamer, a doer, a horizon viewer - come in! come in! Announce yourself and let it be known.
The seed of adventure has been sown.

The goal is to take this boat on a trip that no other Wharram boat has taken.
From Great Slave Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories up the MacKenzie River to the Beafort Sea
and westward to the Bering Sea and south to the inside passage on the Alaska and British Columbia coast.

I am totally making this up as I go and switching plans mid-stream! I have a good idea what the end shape of this board is suppose to be but the thought process is backwards; instead of carving the board out of a chunk of material I'm having to build it up with as little material as possible. I got in a good six hours in the garage today - excellent way to level the emotional keel FYI - changing my approach from what I had conceived last night. Instead of a central stringer with ribs coming off it, I've moved to twin stringers with central cross members to make a structural ladder. This has been shaped, had all the lightening holes cut in it and fitted with the cross members. I switched from gorilla glue which I used on the bottom to epoxy and glued the central structure in. It will sit until tomorrow afternoon before I can get back at it - plenty of time for the epoxy to cure and for me to come up with the next detail.
